Your Next Stamp - New Release Blog Hop!

Hi all!  Welcome to the YNS New Release Blog Hop!!!


Karen has outdone herself again with this release!  There are SO many awesome sets, it's hard to pick a favorite!  There's Oh, Deer, Quirky Animals, another awesome Whatnot Sentiments set, I could go on...  and then there's this guy here.  LOVE.  HIM.  I think he looks a bit too much like me in the mornings, lol!  The set is called Need Coffee? and yes, it's a must.  For my first card, I embossed this pitiful looking guy on watercolor paper then used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens to color him.  {I bought the 24 pack of them, in case anyone is wondering - I'm really not sure I'll need any others and if so, we're talking maybe 3 or 4 and then I'd have every color I could ever want}  I added a strip of glitter card stock on the left.  I used selective stamping of one of the sentiments because, HELLO, look at that awesome "coffee" word die!??!!  Yep, it's new, too!  :D  So 'need' and the question mark are from the sentiment.  The word die was cut out a few times, then layered so that it stood out more. How do you like how I really accentuated the bags under his eyes, ha!  Oh, don't let me forget to mention that we have NEW gumdrops being released!  Three sets with three different colors in each! FUN!  I used the Latte gumdrops on this card, because well, how could I not?!



For my second card, I went back to my trusty Copics.  I then fussy cut him and used the current deconstructed sketch 203.  This sentiment is actually all together in the set but I decided to wonky cut out the 'happy' and 'birthday' part and adhered it to the smaller circle layer.  I couldn't leave out that last line because it's just so funny, so I cut it out using a small die and popped it up on foam adhesive. Again, I added two gumdrops from one of the new gumdrop combo sets.



And of course, we have a sale for you, as always!  ;)


You have lots to see and don't forget to comment along the way for your chance to WIN!!!  Thanks for stopping by!
